When we first heard about a sunrise elopement ceremony on the shores of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park, we were definitely ALL IN. There's some magic and peacefulness in a sunrise ceremony that you can never get anywhere else. This was one of the most happy teared filled elopements we've ever had the privilege of filming and it all started with Jaysa's first look with her dad. I tear up every time I see it because you can just see and hear the love passing between them. Having lost my dad before I was married, it's those little moments that are so priceless and get me every time.
From the very first moment we met Jaysa & Jake, it was so obvious that they were so in love and couldn't wait to see each other down the aisle. When we talked with Jake before the ceremony (he was just hiding out in the woods for over an hour waiting for just the right moment for the ceremony to take place), all he wanted was to see his girl. Sure, he was nervous, but he knew she must look absolutely stunning (and she did OBVIOUSLY). When he did lay eyes on her for the first time, the happy tears were just getting started.
Jaysa & Jake flew in all the way from Minnesota to shoot with us at Glacier National Park and it was such a fun morning exploring all that West Glacier together and being surrounded by the crystal clear glacial lake and epic mountains! Filming couples in love in environments that make you feel small is truly what sets our hearts on FIRE! It's such a rush and an honor and it's what we hope to continue doing for years to come!
Basically, these two were one of the funniest humans (and with the best dance moves) that we've been lucky enough to work with. Their elopement will always hold a special place in our hearts because of how much they loved each other. It's so obvious. Just go and watch the video already!!
